Today, took a round trip on NJ Turnpike from DE to NY City and back. Again, RL360c performed very well. From last discussion with many experts here, I again set it with ”Auto” and travel with most of part at 75 mph. No BSL whatsoever again, that is great! On both ways, I have encountered multiple LEO, all of them were doing tickets writing with cars been pulled over (must not have RL360c on those cars), with the officer’s radar turned on, I can easily detect the initial alerts about mile and half away. In one instance, there two LEOs parked inline, the RL360c detects 2 sources without any hesitation. As I passing EWR (Newark Liberty International Airport), I got multiple MRCD/T alerts at few spots. I am wondering if those are trigged by airport‘s ground monitoring radar and/or localize beacons. As a pilot myself, I am going to dig a little deep on that to see if those are fall into the MRCD/T spectrum. Other than that, it is another trip that gained more RL360c confidence and conforting.

Now, here comes the surprising twist: As I mad on my way to NYC, just pass the American Dream Sports Complex on North I-95, a black unmarked LEO Chevy Impala suddenly showed up in my rearview mirror with flashing lights on! I knew that I wasn’t speeding as traffic was pretty busy in that section of I-95, yet my RL360c was silent as well. So, I pulled over, then within a minute, another police SUV showed up. Then, one officer came over to the window, identified him as local Sheriff Officer, was noticed that I was too closed to the box truck in front of me. Then he started asking some logistics question then asked if he could take a quick look of my rental car, etc. By then I started to figure out I must be pulled over due to a out of state plate, plus there must be some drug trafficking in the area, they were just doing some random checking out of states cars in the area. Long story shot, at the end he was very nice to me, apologized for inconveience, no ticket or anything. Not directly related to RL360c, just want share the interesting encounter.

@HZ360C Glad you made it out of that stop with no ticket. It must have made your heart pound.

On the turnpike it's only C/O Ka and lidar. Very very easy to pick them up but you HAVE to watch the on-ramps...they kill with those.

Regarding the MRCT alert, I do not run K band on the turnpike whatsoever. I don't recall what equipment might set off a detector to that but I'll dig around as well. I drive up and down the turnpike for work so I put a lot of miles on that road.

People being pulled over probably because NYC recently set up Covid-19 checkpoint, anyone from other states especially those from high coronavirus states entering NYC are subject to random pull over by state or city sheriffs of New York.

As others mentioned Corona virus related. Or, plenty of agitators running around (in rentals too) going to help organized night time crime and terror. We have same thing here in smaller doses. Maybe the mayor does not want his mansion burned down. :) Or, you sure this was not “deputy“ who was under authority of feds? Around here, we have this combo duty. Local county folks who have Stingrays, “work” with feds. They drive the typical full sized SUV and Have fed officers with them? Why? 1.) Here in my turf, Stingray monitoring is allowed. Feds are supposed to have a warrant to use theirs. So, they do “joint work” to gather cell data in “legally”. 2.) Feds put close to NYC sent in by WH are keeping lower profile. Otherwise outed/DOX’d by NYC wonks? Trying to catch/track/warn the army before they get into the city?

Glad you’re ok.
did they ask or inquire about your detector or no
No, they didn’t. Probably saw the M1 is flashing the lights, better not say or do anything could end up on the web or media :)

I could understand that. But mine happened in NJ. Unless NJ had joined the task :)

This "?" Is For HZ360C!
Were You On the Jersey Turnpike? or The Side Road (Split-Off) of I-95?

I Ask Because, the Sheriffs Are Prohibited From Being On the Jersey Turnpike!
Unless Part of A Task Force Escorted By the New Jersey State Police!
Also, the New Jersey Sheriffs & Town Police Use X-Band!!! A LOT!...

They Use the Updated; MPH PYTHON POLICE RADAR X BAND GUNS!

There Are Photo Speed Cams Around the Perimeter of Airports In New Jersey!
LaGuardia! And Kennedy Airports! Implemented by Homeland Security!
That Includes Fixed! And Mobile Units On the Off Ramps From the Highways Into the Airport!
Very Sneaky!

This Is the CDC Report Issued In 2011:

This Is A Great Technical Site For Some Added Fun Reading:

It was on I-95, right after toll both at American Dream Sports Complex, right before the exit to RT46.

Photo enforcement is not authorized in NJ, at least it hasn't been. I suppose it could be used as a deterrent to get people to slow down but tickets can not be issued from them.

That's How the Sheriffs Try To Get You Coming Off the Turnpike!
And Running On the Local Road Exits And Shoulder Express Roadways!
Because They're Banned From Toll Roads In New Jersey!

As To "midd"! International Airports In the US Are Under Homeland Security Jurisdiction!
They Are Mandated Not Only Under FAA Laws! But Covered Under A Security Blanket!
As A Multilevel Federal Enforcement Umbrella!

Newark Liberty International Airport Is the 2nd Busiest Hub In the Northeast!
Also, Has the Federal Holding Facility Across the Street From the Tower!
That BIG Block Building With ALL the Barbwire Around It!
It's A Lever-(4) Supermax Holding Facility! ooch!!!

As Fallows:
DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY
U.S. Customs and Border Protection
Transportation Security Administration

They Dictate A Secured Perimeter For That Specific International Airport!
or, Regional Airport That Requires the Operations of Any Said Agencies!

Department of Homeland Security Will Determine Which Agency Will Enforce Citations!
State Police! And or, Federal Police!

You Don't Want To Ever Go To Federal Court For A Speeding Ticket! :-o

This NJ turnpike policing info is really goo stuff. Never knew half of this. I'll stay on the Turnpike and stay away from the side road. I usually get off only if I absolutely need gas.
